    Hi Everyone! I found out that kids can skate and bowl free all summer long. All you have to do is go sign up at www.kidsbowlfree.com and register each child and www.kidsskatefree.com and register your child. Also check your local movie theaters they are offering the summer movie express and admission is only 1$ for everyone. All movies start at 10am.Kids can watch their favorite movies for nine weeks. They will play two movies for each week. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Will Rogers Institute.

    Hello All! My family and I will be moving to the area very soon and we will be homeschooling. I have a seven year old son, a six year old son, a three year old daughter and a 2 year old son. We started off our year using a Waldorf curriculum and now we are heading more towards an unschooling perspective/eclectic homeschooling. We are on our own timeline and aren't necessarily into following any specific curriculum but rather allowing our children to follow their interests! We are always evolving:) I am interested in finding people with similar ideals but also just kind people who are also looking for friendship. We will not know anyone in this area and it's important to me that my kids make connections. They are super sweet kids!! We would love to get involved with a group that we can see on a weekly basis. I have found REACH and the Midlands unschooling group but am also looking for families closer to the Camden area as well that could get together for play dates, etc. We love to hike, we love playgrounds, swimming, legos, exploring, animals and many many other things. We also love to garden and we love to eat fresh organic food. That is just a little bit about us. I hope there are others in the area to connect with:) Looking forward to getting to know SC and making connections!

    Enjoy a family-friendly Easter egg hunt on four-acres of gardens and landscaped greenways at the Seibels House & Gardens (1601 Richland Street). View examples of historical, natural dyed eggs with samples of the items used to dye it and information on how-to at home. Bring a camera for photos with the Easter Bunny and children will play historic outdoor games.

    My girls and I just moved back to SC. I have maintained my SC teacher certification in art education. I have taught individual and private art instruction to children ages prek -12th grade. I teach out of my home in Mt Pleasant or can come to your location. My 13yo is homeschooled and also is anxious to meet other homeschoolers. We look forward to meeting you.

    I also just started with my 5yr old this year. I have been doing things like Starfall with her since she was about 2 1/2. only on occasion and when she is interested. We've been "doing school" semi regularly for over a year already and now that my son is 3yrs old he joins us. Though I take more of an unschool approach the kids have come to expect time at the kitchen table with mommy when my 1yr old takes her nap. It usually consists of puzzles and art with a little math and spelling mixed in. We love GoNoodle, cosmic kids yoga, and cool school. I have only planned a couple of mini lessons to get them ready for a special event at our local library. Next week Riverbanks zoo is coming to the library to talk about animal architects. should be fun! Its amazing how much I have learned since I started teaching my kids!

    Just wanted to say Hi to everyone, I started homeschooling my 5 year old son on June 1st, I am excited, and overwhelmed and glad you all are here. Thank you Dianna for such an awesome association. I hope to be here for years to come.

    Seems I'm not the only one who just started with her 5 yo. Glad to know I have similar company to sound ideas off of, as well as seasoned parents to seek advice as needed. To be honest, the reason this association stood out to me was the amount of get togethers and 'field trips' that are offered. I can't wait to start getting out there and meeting other parents, and getting my son to know some more kids his age! Thank you for this group and its forums! Jennifer

    We are the same here we started on June 1st and starting with my 5 year old. It is amazing and scary at the same time. I want to make sure we are learning the material that should be learning but also providing a lot of self learning and pretend play. We are having a lot of fun exploring the world and have had a great time at edventure.

    Hi Everyone! This is a follow up to my original post. I am not sure if people know that Ms. Dolly Parton has a Imagination Library where every month she will mail a book to your child from birth to the age of five years old. All you have to do is go to www. imaginationlibrary.com and click on the top to register your child if you can not register online then just print the registration form out and mail it to your local affiliate then wait on your first book to arrive. It's that simple. Its a free book program

    Hi Dianna, My daughter is 4 1/2 right now and she want be of kindergarten age until July. Right now we are using Bob Books as well as reading eggs. She also enjoys using starfall.com. I try to stay away from the workbooks and let her explore and do more things that are hands on. I feel right now using the standard book method is to much for a 4 1/2 year old. Children learn 365 days a year and since their is so much to learn their is no need to force a traditional book method. As we continue on our homeschool journey I will look for resources that fit her learning style. Thank You for the welcome.

    Hi all! I am brand new to this site, and I am so relieved to find out the feeling of being overwhelmed is completely normal! (I thought perhaps I should post, as I went on a "like" spree, on almost every response here! lol) My son is 4, will turn 5 in January, and I really feel that homeschooling is best for him. After finding this site, and Carolina Homeschooler association, I really feel much more confident in my decision, and myself! (I was really having feelings of thinking there's no way I'm "smart enough" to completely-from-day-1 homeschool, and how-in-the-world-am-I-ever-gonna-teach-myself-to-know-what-paid-teachers-know...but after reading all the info on this site, and reading posts like this one, it really, truly helps! I'm sorry to hijack this thread, I apologize, I am just so excited, and relieved to finally feel like I'm on the right track, both for me and my family.
